THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!!!

Gang, sometimes you just get so excited for something and it seems like the day will never arrive, and then it does and all the expectations are met and... and... it's like saying a watched pot never boils. Well, the pot has boiled. Sweet sweet boiling radio. Or something.

IT IS SHUFFLE FUNCTION RADIO ROULETTE TIME AGAIN!

This past Saturday Shelley and I taped our third annual Shuffle Function Radio Roulette show, and we were once again joined by the always entertaining Lisa. She runs the best K-tel Record resource on the web, and you can find it at ktelclassics.com. This year she has loads of amazing K-tel info that she is sharing with the group (ie, you guys!) and from my point of view I think this was the most fascinating Radio Roulette yet.

For those of you not yet in the know, Shuffle Function Radio Roulette is what we here at Shuffle Function deemed the most terrifying way to mark Halloween. We have numbered all of Shelley's As Seen On TV Records (144 at last count, but wait until you hear how many Lisa has!) and put all the numbers into an ACTUAL MAGIC HAT! We then draw a number to determine which album we play, then flip a coin to determine if we play side A or side B, then role a 10-sided dice from my magic bag of holding to determine which track we will play. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE WILL END UP HEARING! If you know As Seen On TV Records, then you know that we could play something great, or we could end up playing something that may make you dial directory assistance for Dr. Kevorkian's number.

It is all random, all vinyl, and all awesome. It airs Thursday, October 28th at six p.m. on Shuffle Function: UNBOUND! Only on your radio friend, 89.7 fm, KMSU.

Thanks to everyone that pledged during the last pledge drive. Your generosity is humbling and truly appreciated. We should be getting the t-shirts, grab bags, and calls about the Program Director days out shortly.

Once again, thanks.

Shyboy

Maybe Lawrence Welk was onto something...

Hey all! The "Polka 'Til You Puke" show was a huge huge success. Thanks to everyone who pledged during it, too. I think Shelley and I both thought that having a polka show would be fun and wouldn't necessarily raise much for the Pledge Drive a-go-go, but the calls actually increased during it! Never EVER underestimate the power of a good polka.

If you are interested in contributing to the cause of independent radio in a corporate radio wasteland, please see my previous post. It has phone numbers and web addresses for lending a financial hand to KMSU and its unique and valuable programming.

Some things coming up on the show in the following weeks:

October 28th is our Annual Shuffle Function Radio Roulette show. We will once again be joined by Lisa, who is always a blast. This year will be of particular interest because Lisa has been involved with the K-tel organization in an effort to create a discography of all their releases. Oddly, one doesn't already exist. Lisa also runs a fantastic K-tel website with an ever evolving discography. You can find it at ktelclassics.com.

We are interviewing Neal Pollack, author of the amazing rock and roll novel Never Mind The Pollacks, this coming week and plan to have the show put together shortly thereafter. If you are a music geek and believe that rock and roll idols are made for destroying, check it out. It is a hilarious read, and only a person with a real love of rock and roll could so successfully take the piss out of it.

Another future interview is with Sue Carpenter, author of 40 Watts From Nowhere and former operator of the legendary L.A. pirate radio station KBLT. Sue ran KBLT from her home, and the station eventually gained so much notoriety that it received major label support! Mike Watt used to do a regular show on it, too, and you can even see a KBLT sticker on a locker in an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. We're waiting for Sue's schedule to open up, as well as for a list of songs she thinks need to be played on the radio, and then it'll be pirate radio Shuffle Function style! Seriously, check out her book. If you think commercial radio sucks you will find it very validating.

Also, on Thursday October 14th we'll be interviewing the head writer of The Daily Show about the new book the show has put out. The book is as funny as the show, which equals Huh-laaaaaarious!

Thanks again for all your support during Pledge Drive a-go-go. If you haven't contributed yet, or haven't considered it, please give it some serious thought. There are so few independent public voices left in this world, and they are often the voices that need the most assistance.

PLEDGE DRIVE A-GO-GO!

Hey, gang, it is Pledge Drive a-go-go time again at KMSU, so don't forget to help! KMSU relies HEAVILY on listener contributions, and that gets to be more and more the case every single year.

We currently have two premiums for Shuffle Function listeners:
$50 gets you a swagtastic Shuffle Function t-shirt that says one of two things about you: "I am a music geek with excellent taste in radio" or "I'm Shelley's relative and got this shirt from her for Christmas". Either way you are styling and letting your geek flag fly.

$100 lets you be Shuffle Function's "Program Director for a day"! Yes, you can come in from 6 to 8 a.m. some morning and play whatever you want! It is your show that day, so Shelley and I are merely voices and button pushers. Once the check clears or the credit card goes through or whatever, we can set up a time and you can come up with a stack of vinyl or Cds or whatever and rule the airwaves... for two hours! If I was me I'd do it!

How do you help fund independent radio in an increasingly corporate radio abused broadcasting area? Call 507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810 and pledge your support, or you can go to kmsu.org and click the donation link. If you do it via the web, be sure to specify that you would like the money to go towards KMSU, or it could end up going elsewhere!

Also, if you listened to this Thursday's night time show (aka Shuffle Function UNBOUND!) and heard us offering the program director premium for TWO HUNDRED Dollars and pledged, well first off you rule, but also the show was taped before we changed our minds and went with the value price of ONE HUNDRED dollars. If you pledged $200, we'll make sure you also get the t-shirt, plus Shelley and I will find some other stuff from our personal stashes of randomness to throw in. But mostly you will rule.

Make the baby happy, people. Help keep KMSU on the air!

Er... Um...

On the show I mentioned that the new Elliot Smith is coming out on October 5th. That's wrong. I spoke to Carl @ Tune Town and he said it was due on October 19th. The bright side, however, is that Shelley and I are sure to play the whole thing by the time it hits the stores.

The other bad news is that The Screens had to cancel on the show we are co-presenting at the What's Up? Lounge October 8th. They got an actual paying gig opening for a favorite group of theirs at the 7th Street Entry, so we can't blame them for their decision. They said they want to reschedule for some time in November, so hopefully that will happen as I think they would tear the roof off the joint. The Rhythmaplex Project and We Invented Tornados are still slated to play and we're hoping to get a third act.

Why I will be (more) broke on October 5th

Excellent things released on October 5th:
New Cds by William Shatner, Tom Waits, R.E.M.

New DVD: Farenheit 9/11, which supposedly has a bunch of supplemental stuff that will make Karl Rove's head pop off.

Big Time Show: Vote For Change @ the Xcel Energy Center. R.E.M., Springsteen, John Fogerty and Bright Eyes. I'm already exhausted.

Crazy Political Thing: Cheney vs. Edwards! One night only! Be a responsible American and find out what is going on!

It seems like the powers that be have conspired to suck everybody's currency from them on the 5th by whatever means necessary.

Also, Paul Westerberg has one live date in the whole country scheduled for Nov. 5th at the Pantages Theater in Minneapolis. Tickets are going on sale at noon on October 1st, so if it is 12:05 p.m. on October 1st when you are reading this, then I'm sorry.
